Although the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) has dashcam and bodycam videos of the officer-involved shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, CMPD Chief Putney has made the decision to show those videos only to the family and their lawyers so far, saying, “We release it when we believe it is a compelling reason, but I'm not going to jeopardize the investigation.” The wife of Scott, Rakeyia Scott, has made her mobile phone video available and has claimed that it proves the police officers killed her husband for no reason except that he was black.
